The classy Stephen Harper returns to speak truth to the illiberal left
When Harper spoke last week, it was important that he spoke as he did: in clear and fully justified, yet dismissive, tones. There was no equivocation or timidity in his words. He described the modern left as "nihilist" and bent on "ripping everything down." And he was crystal clear about what this new, angry radicalism could mean: "If it plays out, our societies fail ... the adolescent egos of the woke university crowd is not an alternative governing philosophy for any society."
